Extra Job Statement Layouts

The Job Costing system currently allows for one statement layout, Release 6.2 expands this to four layouts allowing configuration for a ‘budget’ statement if using the budget timesheet options or the configuration of specific statements focusing on the hours worked on a job or the costs of a job.

Selecting the Job Statement option from the reports menu will, if more than one statement layout defined, show the statements available for selection. Once you choose the statement layout then the run-time options are as previously available.


Installation

The extra layouts are defined within the Application User Facilities for Job Costing. From the main menu select Installation followed by Application Manager and then Application User Facilities. Select the Job Costing application followed by Job Statement.


Job Statement 1 contains the statement layout for the original report, statements 2-4 can be defined as required (these labels are updated once a job statement title is set).Selecting the statement allows:


Job Items Left – Allows print of twenty items from the Job File that will be listed on the left of the statement header area. This parameter screen allows for the definition of the statement sort items.

Job Items Right – Allows print of twenty items from the Job File that will be listed on the right of the statement header area.
